CMT(Country Music TV) is going to premier it's first scripted series "Working Class" on Friday January 28 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT.
Through One2One Network I was able to watch a "sneak preview". I think this show is going to be a real winner. It is funny, has great stars and is a show you can let you youngest children watch without being afraid of what they may see or hear.
The new 12 episode, multi-camera series follows Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her three kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought. She's unwittingly befriended by her cranky neighbor, Hank (Ed Asner), her only “career” prospect is a glorified deli job at the local grocery store, and the man she falls for not only already has a girlfriend – but he’s also her boss, Rob (Patrick Fabian). With her ladies-man brother, Nick (Steve Kazee), to help her out (when he’s not acting like one of the kids himself), Carli faces the challenges of parenting, dating, and making friends in her new community by doing more with less, staying true to herself and approaching each day with a touch of working class.
The complete cast includes:
Melissa Peterman – “Carli Mitchell”
Ed Asner – “Hank Greziak,” Carli’s neighbor.
Steve Kazee – “Nick Garrett,” Carli’s brother.
Patrick Fabian – “Rob Parker,” Carli’s boss and love interest.
Lachlan Buchahan – “Scott Mitchell,” Carli’s eldest son.
Courtney Merritt – “Pam Mitchell,” Carli’s daughter.
Cameron Castaneda – “Will Mitchell,” Carli’s youngest son.
The show also plans to feature multiple guest stars such as Reba, David Faustino, Kathy Kinney, Martin Mull, John Schneider, Ryan Stiles, Lesley Ann Warren and CMT's very own Evan Farmer from CMT Top 20 Countdown throughout the season.
